What to Wear for Babies and Toddlers | Boston Family Photographer


When families are getting ready to bring their babies and toddlers in front of my camera for a photo session, I always get questions about what kinds of outfits photograph well.

The good news is that little ones always look cute! But to help with your planning, I’ve pulled together some of my favorite microfashion inspiration.

Solid basics are always a great option for baby photo sessions. Baby photographer Boston, Sudbury family photographer, natural light.

This little guy had several outfit changes during his photo shoot and all of them were perfection! I love this classic, neutral onesie, which makes these photos timeless.

Neutrals always photograph nicely. I suggest staying away from very bright colors because they can reflect onto the faces of little ones, making them look red or green. Neutrals keep skin tones looking soft and natural.

Tiny overalls are perfection! They stay on well no matter how much rolling and crawling happens. No fuss, no muss.

Babies in tiny sweaters are just the best! I love a cozy sweater for the fall and winter months, especially when paired with little socks and leggings. While this is a lot of pattern with the carpet, the sweater grounds the outfit in this impromptu shot that I took while friends were visiting my home.

I hope these help to inspire your choices as you prepare your baby or toddler for their photo session! I can’t wait to see what you choose!
